A quick bit of random Roman history - the Third Punic War. If anyone has ever made a reference to Carthago delenda est! -- Carthage must be destroyed!; this is what they're talking about. Basically, the Roman Senator Cato bitched about Carthage long and hard enough to get it razed. Generally the reference is made relating to Cato's ability to work his campaign catch cry into absolutely any statement.
